Here Goes Nothing…

Well I have decided to put myself out there as a ‘real’ photographer. I feel bizarre. Anyway if you would like to check out my new WEBSITE (oh man those things take AGES to put together, don’t they?!) I’m at kimclements.com.au. I’d love to hear your thoughts or experiences. I have just stepped out of my comfort zone!Web collage 1

Something that sets it apart

There are so many portraits. Its nice to have smiles, especially from children, but sometimes the unexpected moment that you may pass over might be the shot that means more to the parent. An expression that is uniquely familiar will be cherished because it can take them back to a moment that they may otherwise forget.

I love this shot because it is an expression that I see regularly. The questioning, inquisitive, what are you about to ask me Mum face. That and the connection to the camera makes me feel like I’m in the moment.

Now, if I can only capture that for my clients, I will be a happy woman.

My Second Newborn Slept! Hoorah!

Wow! What a difference it makes when they are brand new and sleeping! The difference between a baby wide awake at 4 weeks and sleepy, bendy and 1 week is incredible.

I have decided now to start a facebook page for my photography. You can find me HERE if you are interested in having a look.

Super Cute and a bit Shocked!

I think there might have to be some flexibility when it comes to working with kids. Babies especially are so bewildered by the break in routine when they are brought out for photos at tea/dinner time or bath time or worse bed time! I love the wide eyed wonder. Anyone know any good jokes for babies?

When is the best light for portraits? No. 2

Tonight I went out a bit later. About 1/2 and hour later. I walked to 4 different locations in close proximity to each other. Varying results again. The sun drops so fast. I suppose that should be taken into consideration when thinking out the plan. I also think that the amount of sunlight getting into my camera is causing it to struggle to focus?? An additional thought: baby’s are hungry, tired and not into sitting for portraits at golden hour. I will need more experiments. These are from tonight’s haul.
